California Welfare Code: Homosexuality Inborn

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Another step in silencing Conservative Christians who believe that homosexuality is a choice and is wrong.

Beginning this New Year, California will implement AB 2199 and ultimately strike down the requirement on the State Department of Mental Health to conduct research on the “causes and cures of homosexuality.” According to Veronica Esqueda, a renal social worker in Los Angeles, the measure will portray alternate lifestyles as acceptable and normal.

AB 2199, sponsored by Equality California, gained the support of homosexual activists who claim it is discriminatory to search for cures for their sexual orientation. Advocates argue that those in the LGBT (lesbian, “gay,” bisexual transgender) community were born to favor alternate lifestyles, so they contend the section of the Welfare and Institutions code is archaic and portrays them as sexual deviants. Esqueda, however, thinks the new law will suppress the Christian voice.

“I believe it is going to impact the conservatives, the Christians, and I think it’s going to basically have a discrimination [effect] against the conservative Christian believer,” she laments. “It’s going to be just another way to silence [their message].”

A Push for Parental Involvement Rights for Teens Seeking Abortions

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

It still defies logic, that in some states, teens are allowed to circumvent getting their parents approval to get an abortion, a major medical procedure.
Teens are not allowed to have anything but life saving procedures without approval from parents. How on earth anyone can make the logical jump from that type of approval process to allowing a child to get an abortion without permission, is beyond me.
In Pennsylvania, there is a move to counteract a push by the abortion mills to allow abortions without parental permission.

Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is working with several of the state’s pro-life organizations and legislators and has submitted a friend-of-the-court brief arguing that parents should have an integral role in their child’s decisions, including when it comes to abortion.

Pennsylvania’s current law does contain a process that allows a pregnant girl to bypass parental notification and request abortion permission from a judge if the girl fears abuse or abandonment — but that, suggests the attorney, apparently is not enough for the abortion lobby.

The law “does have a judicial bypass procedure, but even that isn’t good enough for the abortion industry here,” Bowman laments. “They’re trying to make it so that minors can have secret abortions without any requirements legally.”
